It's Episode 78 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog.
Our latest episode was recorded in two parts due to a technical hitch, but hopefully you won't be able to tell. The break allowed us to return post-Screen Actors Guild Awards announcement to give a brief run-down of our thoughts, but are we happy with the nominees? Cal had some worrying preconceptions about awards player "Nebraska," after the (among other things) criminal voice-over in the first fifteen minutes of "The Descendants," but did its monochrome mumblecore ways win us over? The big questions of the week are where Ethan Hawke's 73rd film of 2013, "Getaway," ranks on the dreaded Cage Scale, and whether Selena Gomez can manage to keep her clothes on, while some unexpected female casting in "Kill Your Darlings" threatens to shake up this week's edition of The Watson Factor. We discuss the virtues of Disney's "Frozen," which has us both rapturous about one thing or another, and we take time out to consider the fragility of the Supporting Actor Oscar race, the allure of Imogen Poots' nose, and revel in Zack Snyder being dealt a body blow by AMPAS.
